The development of a 7-12 campus at the Englewood High School campus site includes demolition of approximately 85,090 square feet of existing building, and renovation of approximately 133,910 square feet of the existing building, and new building addition space totaling approximately 80,290 square feet. The site will initially be built to accommodate some growth in student population with a design that easily allows for future expansion as needed.
Major design consideration will be placed on the development of separate building entrances for the middle school and high school with some shared spaces to maximize use of flexible spaces. New shared functions and specials rooms will be located in the common areas between the middle and high school grade levels. The new entrance for the high school will become an architectural focal point and will encourage community use of the facility.
Demolition will be extensive and necessary for cost savings associated with efficiencies gained through energy conscious design. Additionally, the new buildings will be designed to support the programs and curricula focused on building 21st century skills that ensure students graduate able to successfully compete in the job market and/or post-secondary education. Demolition will include removal of the Lowell Elementary building that has been decommissioned. This 7-12 campus is intended to create a major change and create a significant campus the community can take pride in. The field house with all its support functions, theater, band rooms, and choir room, will be retained because of their significance.
